  1. Hello Calvin,

    Hope u’ll have the time responding to this. Been checking affordable flights going to siem reap, but it’s pretty hard, though. Prices of different airlines are a total rip off. So, am so thankful when I found your site. Anyways, regarding the hotel that helped you book the direct, two-way bus ride to siem reap, Do you have any idea if they could help us book the bus, buy the ticket eventhough we won’t be stayingnand spending a night in there hotel? We just want their service to help us book the bus ride to siem reap and going back. Also, please advise us as to what time we should start from saigon to siem reap?

      what i would suggest is to go straight to mekong express limousine office. there’s one near the backpacker’s area. do it the day before your trip and you should get the morning schedule (earliest possible). not sure if the hotel would book it for you.

    Hi Calvin,

    I really find your blog entry very helpful especially since I’m flying to Siem Reap this coming nov and we’re also planning to take the bus to ho chi minh since we’ll be flyinh back to mnl from there. However we’re on a tight sched (5days) so we’re planning on travelling by night to save on time and to maximize our stay too. But since you’ve mentioned that the post office closes during the night, I’m wondering if you would know how long it’ll take to reach the siem reap post office from the city? Maybe we can leave after lunch or in the afternoon? I hope you can reply to this. Thanks.

      hi bechelle, i don’t recall mentioning anything about post office hehehe. but if you’re talking about the border, i think it’s a good 8-hours from Siem Reap since it’s near Vietnam already. you can probably e-mail mekong limousine and ask them if they have night trips from siem reap and the time it will arrive in HCM.
